Review of XL in Viet.... I don't understand but from the sample shots, I see the camera is pretty amazing! Remember to watch in 1080p

Should be LTE. If not, won't be getting one. The price is already pretty high as compared to pricing in other countries.

Thanks bro! I guess so as well. Is dumb for MS to release a 3G model instead of LTE for such beauty....

Actually I am KPKB-ing to MSFT, why the F they bring in the Dual-SIM LTE version to Malaysia and not to Singapore.

I reckon is Telcos play a part in this decision process. You know Singapore Telcos always "money earned not enough" ... so with a dual SIM card phone, it means consumers have a choice to use different Data plans which the telco will earn less. So for MSFT to make friend friend with local telcos here, they have to "hear" what the Telcos want.

Might go to MAlaysia and buy the LTE DS 640XL instead. #justsaying

There will be a successor to Flagship devices when Windows 10 is fully ready for the market.

So right now with Windows 10 technical preview and WP8.1, they are only launching mid-range and entry level devices.

And yes, I am also waiting for a Lumia 1520 replacement.

Was at Bedok Mall SingTel shop just now. There is two working sets, 01 x White Lumia 640 + 01 x Matt Black Lumia 640XL. If you wanna try, go there and see?
